How Are The Attorney’s Fees Paid On Wage And Hour/Overtime Cases, And Do I Have To Pay A Fee If I Lose My Case?

Generally speaking, fees on overtime and wage cases are paid by the employer if the employee prevails on the claim for wages. The law allows for a recovery of attorney’s fees from the employer if the claim prevails, and are many times, in fact paid by the employer. There are times where the fees are paid as a percentage of recovery, contingent upon prevailing in the case. In the event, you lose your case or do no prevail, our firm does not generally seek fees, nor costs, from the client. Please feel free to contact us for more information in this respect.
